  • Dogs maybe.. children.. I'm not to sure.
    When i was pregnant with my youngest my 4 year old was oblivious. It might only work for kids under 2...
    Or.. your 2 year old just feels like something is going on and is clingy becasue she's nervous. I'm not sure.

  • I have never thought about that, but my daughter is going to be 2 in February and it would be really cool if she could just tell. :D I think she's pretty oblivious to most things though lol

  • THEY CAN SENSE IT... WHEN I WAS TRYING TO GET PREGNANT I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I WAS PREGNANT YET.. BUT MY 3 YEAR OLD KEPT ASKING ME: " ARE YOU PREGNANT"? IT WAS WEIRD. THAN A COUPLE WEEKS LATER I FOUND OUT I WAS PREGNANT.. THEY CAN ALSO SENSE THE SEX.. BUT WHO KNOWS IT COULD BE A MYTH... BUT WHEN I WAS GONNA HAVE MY ULTRASOUND DONE. I ASKED MY SON WHAT I WAS GONNA HAVE AND HE SAID A GIRL AND IT IS A GIRL. SAME THING HAPPENED TO MY SISTER. BUT WHO KNOWS

  • my two year old knew i was having a girl! When I told the ultrasound tech she said once she had a couple in and their 3 year old was with them. Right before they started they asked him if it was a boy or a girl. He said, One of each! They laughed until the ultrasound started and they found out they were having twins and sure enough it was a boy and a girl!!!!

  • When my sister became pregnant with her second, she wasn't aware she was pregnant. Well, one day her son (he was 8 then) came up to her and hugged her and said that he heard that baby in her belly..she was like "what? theres no baby in there." he kept saying he heard the baby. ...went to the doc..yup. pregnant.

  • I believe so! Because I went to a christmas party today. My fiance and I are trying to get pregnant. And this 17 month old little girl came over to me and didn't even know me and put her arms up for me. It was a wonderful feeling. :) and she let me hold her. The mom said I remind her of her teacher Katie. Hehe seems odd to me. But maybe. :) I think I have a very high chance. I have been trying for 2 months now. :) I really am hopeful! Please pray for me. I really can't wait! I am thrilled. :)

  • OMG! That would explain so much with my son! He has been very clingy, to only me. And the other day he laid with his head on my belly for a long time (he never sits still). I really hope that is what is going on with him. Tomorrow would be the earliest day for me to test but DH is out of town :( He may be back as early as tomorrow or as late as Wed. The wait is killing me! GL and baby dust to all!!
